Blog Post: Top 6 Sledding Hills in Vienna

Which sledding hill in Vienna is the "Daddy of 'em all"?!

Real estate is all about location, and so is SLEDDING; so in honor of today’s snow, we present you with the 6 Best Sledding Hills in Vienna, Va!

Whenever anyone talks about snow, don’t you find your mind wandering back to your childhood and remembering all the adventures you had in the snow? We sure do. Some of us on The Belt Team started out life in Southern California. We didn’t have much experience with snow in our early days. In fact, we hardly even ever saw rain! I remember traveling to Denver for a wedding once and in order to play in the snow, we had to wrap plastic baggies around our hands & feet because we didn’t own gloves or boots (who needed gloves & boots at the beach?!).

Forty-one years ago, we moved from California to Vienna. And not long after we arrived, IT SNOWED! Dad bought us our first sled and we immediately set out to enjoy this new world of speed & excitement. We had an old-fashioned Flexible Flyer sled and soon gained a reputation for the fastest sled in Waverly. We’d sled for hours and hours, with brief intermissions for hot chocolate and sustenance, only to head out for more. Night-time sledding was the best.

Those were the days.

Since we’re finally having a “real” snowstorm (or at least as “real” as it ever gets in Northern VA), we thought we’d share what we think are the . . .

PS – If you start going stir-crazy and need to get out, there’s one place in Vienna we have always found open during a snow storm (at least since 1977 when it opened) and that’s The Amphora. Even back in the 90′s when we had three double-digit snow storms in a several week period, The Amphora stayed open.

And now . . .

LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW! LET IT SNOW!
